means that he is not going to negotiate on this debt ceiling. do you sense that's what is coming out of this? or is there a darker path that they are trying to follow? >> well, what has me so intrigued are the at attentions between the house republicans and the republicans in the senate. if you look at the sequestration and automatic budget cuts, it looks like the house wants to try to blame the senate if things fall apart. so they can say now the burden is on the senate which they have to agree to an overall budget deal by april. and then they can say at that point we'll deal with the debt ceiling. so it was a way to put some pressure on mitch mcconnell. but mitch mcconnell seems to think that okay we'll pass a budget in the senate and then use that as possible leverage with the republicans in the house who might hold up the debt ceiling. >> michael: that makes perfect sense that that is what they are trying to do it is really just passing the buck. the white house held a firm line on saying we're not going to negotiate at all on this debt ceiling, and it worked. do you think this is a

on the debt ceiling. >> it's a threat they can't sustain. no one is going to default. no one is going to allow the united states to not pay it's bills. no one is going to accept the economic costs. it rallies the entire business community to the president's side. >> jennifer: he said he would rather have them fight on spending. there might be signs of progress on the senate side, too. alaska republican senator lisa murkowski told the fairbanks daily news miner that spending cuts should not be tied to the debt ceiling debate. then she added if you incur an obligation, you have an responsibility to pay for that. well, it's nice to finally hear someone from the party of personal responsibility stand up for the government's responsibility. joining me now for the latest on debt politics and much more is michelle bernard the president and korea of the person senator center for women politics and public policy. she's joining us from washington, d.c. and with me in the studio is the always insightful strategist donnie fowler. welcome inside "the war room"." >> glad to be here. >> i'm going to

probably would be. and then, of course, there is a debt ceiling vote. now you hear a lot of republicans making noises about backing down from the debt ceiling fight. it is interesting by the way, i know we're not here to talk about that. it is interesting how the conventional wisdom has shifted on that. >> jennifer: quickly too. >> so quickly. just another sign of the shifting sands. it all hinges on how public opinion turns. and you know, is the president going to go out on the stump? is he going to go out and barnstorm the country for his proposals? how much political capital is he going to put into it? if he really builds up public support for the proposals and public support grows and if they feel pressure, he'll bring a vote. >> >> jennifer: just to take you back to that -- not the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling issue that the republicans do seem to be going soft on, i do think one of the reasons why they went so soft is because major traditionally republican lobbying groups were advocating like the chamber of commerce came out strongly saying this is crazy. i'm wondering if there

the way his first term ended with questions about the debt ceiling, questions about gun safety questions about whether this congress will give so much as an inch on any of it. i'm afraid we might already know the answer to the last one. [♪ theme music ♪] >> jennifer: it has been nearly five weeks since the nowtown massacre, and the town's police chief has a very simple message for washington. >> ban assault weapons, restrict those magazines that have so many bullets in them. >> jennifer: progressives are pushing for a ban and diane feinstein says she'll introduce on assault weapon ban later this month. john mccain expressed his doubts. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >> jennifer: now the question is without republican support is the president going to push for a ban any ways? so from his progressive basis point of view he has a mandate and he should use it. 62% of americans do support a ban. from the white house's perspective pushing an assault weapon's ban is a risky proposition. the president addressed

they caved on the debt ceiling. so why did they cave on the debt ceiling. we have an expert on that. i think that's really interesting, and what do they plan to do on the budget fights instead. and then there is an unbelievable documentary on how wall street got away with clear criminal action. it's a devastating story. i can't wait to share it. >> jennifer: all right. cenk uygur "young turks" at the top of the hour. thanks, cenk. >> thank you. >> jennifer: now we're going to turn to a story about equality. located in the nation's capitol, washington national cathedral is the sixth largest cathedral in the world, and the second largest in the united states. it was built in 1792. it is magnificent. it has hosted many important events. it is also a place where local d.c. resident goes to pray and baptize their children and get married. and now for the first time in the institution's more than 200-year history, gay couples can officially get married at the cathedral too. here to tell us about this exciting development is the dean of the national cathedral, the very reverend gary hall. he

? >> oh, yes it probably would be. then of course is the debt ceiling vote. you see a lot of americans making noises about backing down from the debt ceiling fight. i know we're not here to talk about that, but it's interesting how the conventional wisdom has shifted on that. it's just another sign of the shifting sand. it all hinges on the american people turns. is he going to out to the country on his proposals? how much political capital is he going to put into it. if they feel pressure, he'll bring a vote. >> jennifer: i think he will too. to take you back not to the fiscal cliff but the debt ceiling issues that the republicans do seem to be going soft on. i do think one of the reasons why they went soft was because traditionally republican lobbying groups were coming out. i wonder if there are traditionally republican groups like law enforcement organizations, the police associations who might tend to be conservative, if they came out strong and spoke if the faith community came out strong and spoke, they may shake a little bit. let's talk about senator cruise thinks is
